Penny Stamps Speaker Series: Peter Sellars

Thu., March 21, 5:10 p.m.

In the opening monologue of Act II of As You Like It, William Shakespeare famously wrote, “All the world’s a stage.” No one embraces that sentiment quite as strongly as MacArthur Genius fellow and theater director Peter Sellars. Known for his socially and culturally eye-opening stagings of classic operas and plays, Sellars has a reputation for the reimagining of his production’s source material, something he has been both celebrated and criticized for doing (for example, he set George Frideric Handel’s Orlando in outer space and Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte in a coffee shop). Sellars also leads a class on art as social action and art as moral action at UCLA. Free

Amanda Palmer

Thu., March 21, 6 p.m.

Palmer's latest record, There Will Be No Intermission — her first solo record in seven years and a fully crowdfunded follow-up to 2012's fully crowdfunded Theatre Is Evil — is Palmer at her most demanding, which might be hard to believe based on everything we know about the 42-year-old artist. In the album's press release, its themes are described as spanning "miscarriage, cancer, grieving, and the darker side of parenthood." And to her credit, the album is about all those things, and quite obviously. On the record she also covers topics like young adult author Judy Blume, the rabbit hole that is social media, and loaning things to friends that were never returned to her. $35+

Fractured Beauty

Tuesdays-Sundays, 6 p.m. Continues through March 23

Though beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, Michigan’s dismal winter pallet is an acquired taste and we are sort of totally over it. To offer some eye-candy, David Klein Gallery’s Fractured Beauty features three multidisciplinary artists, all of whom explore color, perspective, and form through their respective mediums. Alisa Henriquez uses collage and distortion as a means to explore femininity and Detroit-based Andrew Krieger uses wood and clay to create three-dimensional panels to reflect the many sides of beauty. Rounding out the showcase is Los Angeles sculptor Brad Howe, who mixes nature and bold color to explain his multi-perspective narrative. Fractured Beauty will be on display until March 23. Free
